CAR OPENING TOOLS
Another common method is to use wedges during car lockouts. These tools have a wide variety of sizes and shapes in order to accomplish success with different makes and models of vehicles, no matter the brand. However, some wedges from this spectrum might seem to be more refined and reliable, as they have an impressive and proven track record and will not harm your vehicle. How do wedges work, though? They serve as a tool to create an opening in the door so that another tool can be utilized to unlock the door from the interior of the car. Once the wedge is in its proper position, a Lasso Tool is commonly used for upright door locks. The lasso grasps the lock so that the lock can be pulled upwards to unlock the car door. For cars that do not have upright locks, a rod can be used for push or slide buttons.
Some tools act similarly to the Slim Jim, in terms of wedge free entries. Japanese tools, which are aptly named due to its predominant use in Japanese manufactured cars, are dropped down between the weather strip and the windowpane of your car and come up on the other side of the glass in order to effectively manipulate thumb style locks. Auto Busters also enter the car just like the Japanese tool, but are more effective on sidelocks.
